Abstract

This paper proposes a three-dimensional (3D) virtual studio system that supports various types of experiential learning using chroma keying and real-time 3D virtual reality techniques. The objective of the proposed system is to maximize learning, especially self-directed learning, and to promote student motivation by improving several technical problems inherent to previously developed virtual education systems. The main improvements are the system speed, the quality of 3D virtual spaces, and the control technique of the user interface with the addition of a speech recognition function. The proposed system was applied and practically used in English classes at several elementary schools in Korea. The results indicated that the proposed system can provide a learning environment in which students can engage in more efficient self-directed learning by enhancing their engagement in the learning process.
